Hey Group,

Thought I would share this interesting Tech Crunch report from Ben Savage,
the guy behind Game Engine Spaceport.io: http://spaceport.io/

"*Apple will NOT fix HTML5 sound in mobile Safari*

HTML5 sound used to work well in mobile Safari, back in the days iOS3.
However, Apple disabled most of the API in iOS 4 and 5. It just introduces
competition for iTunes  both the music store, and the App Store. In its
continued fight to maintain total
the Apple ecosystem, they will refrain from fixing HTML5 sound in 2012."
